Lisa Gade reviews the late 2017 edition of the HP Spectre x360 with a 15.6” 4K IPS display supporting N-Trig pen and touch, Intel 8th generation 15 watt U series CPUs and NVIDIA MX150 2GB GDDR5 dedicated graphics. The 15” x360 looks identical to last year’s model, and the two things that changed- CPU and GPU are very significant. The CPU is 40% faster thanks to Intel’s doubling cores to 4 in the 8th gen, and NVIDIA’s graphics are roughly 30% faster than last year’s 940MX.
The 2kg / 4.42 lb. laptop is clad in a striking two tone dark ash silver and copper metal casing and it has a backlit keyboard and large trackpad. It has two RAM slots and our model has 16GB DDR4 RAM, a 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD, Intel 8265AC WiFi with Bluetooth 4.2 and Thunderbolt 3.
